Every once in a while a service you just expect to be up isn’t.

YouTube for instance.

It’s like if you go to Amazon.com and you see it down.

Mind you, I’ve seen Amazon down both before I was there and from the inside when you see how the sausage is made.

I lump Google, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and the like into the same camp. Companies that have enough of an Internet presence to effectively ensure that almost no amount of outage is enough to take them off the net.

Then something like this happens.

Oh well… maybe it’s just a sign that I should get back to something more productive.  :-)
